AKA Emanuelle: Queen of Sados
After years of abuse at the hands of her husband, a woman, Emmanouella, is pushed to the breaking point. She hires a hitman to do in her husband, but just when she thinks her troubles are at an end, the assassin blackmails her. As her husband’s business partner struggles to prove her guilt, and as the hitman continues to threaten her new found security, Emmanouella struggles to keep her name clear and to keep her naive stepdaughter from becoming tangled in the web of danger she has created.
Gemser, of course is as lovely as ever, but given a little too much to do here and what with the rambling of the script she has little chance, even if she fares better than most who seem to take it in turns to under act and over act. Taking the storyline seriously is a bad mistake but the many and varied sex sequences are fine. If you don’t mind sex mixed with more than a little violence that is. Here we get rape and near rape, an extraordinary scene where a medallion wearing gentleman disturbs a woman in his flat, knocks her about a bit and then considers that sex would be a good idea and the couple fall into each other’s arms, and other almost jaw dropping moments. Unbelievable shots of Gemser nude astride a horse deep in the sea which may or may not be supposed to contrast with a later rape of a young girl in the shallow surf!
